Edinburgh—Scotland’s capital, a cultural beacon, and UNESCO World Heritage Site—is a treasure of a city, from the soaring peak of Arthur’s Seat to the River Forth’s shores. Here are a few ways to enjoy your time in Edinburgh on a tour from London.
 
Full-Day Tours
Main highlights of Edinburgh can be covered in a day, and train routes will whisk you there in less than five hours from London. Explore Edinburgh’s beautiful Old Town and the UNESCO–listed Royal Mile, marvel at the Scottish Crown Jewels in Edinburgh Castle, or sample a wee dram at the famous Scotch Whisky Experience. To take in the top sites with ease, simply jump aboard the hop-on hop-off bus and enjoy the freedom to explore at your own pace.

Multi-Day Tours
Edinburgh is near the rolling hills, soaring peaks, and shimmering lochs for which Scotland and the mighty Highlands are famous. For travelers with time to spare, multi-day tours offer a chance to delve deep into the countryside and see sides of Scotland many visitors miss. Admire the natural beauty of Loch Ness and the Great Glen, learn of Scotland’s troubled history at the battle sites of Glencoe, and admire the flanks of Ben Nevis—the highest mountain in the British Isles.
 
Things to Know
  • Edinburgh lies 414 miles (666 kilometers) north of London, a train journey of less than five hours.
  • Day tours from London to Edinburgh typically last about 16 hours, including round-trip train travel, so prepare for a long day.
  • Edinburgh is prime for exploring on foot but the terrain is hilly in parts, so comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
